I chose this blogging site because surrealism is a favorite art style of mine that I can connect with.

Aside from interesting, the site has good resources for one to use.
On the digital art page of the blog, I found an example of a good resource. This page contains many hyperlinks to other forms of contacts to artists and links to other art resources. Most of these links further showcase the work of these artists and give the viewers an insider look into an artist’s intent behind their art.
